Fanfic / War Wounds

A fanfic based on the Max Brooks novel World War Z, focusing on stories from survivors in areas not mentioned much in the main story (for example, chapters focus on Mongolia and Brunei.)

War Wounds contains examples of the following tropes:

  • After the End: Much like the original work, the stories come from survivors discussing their wartime experiences after the war itself has ended.
  • Britain Is Only London: Averted. A chapter is set in Liverpool.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: According to Balducci, several of these were at the hospital in Pescara held under siege by zombies. They don't make it.
  • Mercy Killing: The rationale used by several characters killing non-infected humans, arguing it would be better they are killed by humans than killed by zombies. With the Pescaran hospital, maybe justifiable. With the firebombing of Brunei, less so.
